What Counts as a Dental Emergency?
Sometimes our patients delay seeking necessary treatment because they don’t know if they are experiencing a dental emergency or not. Does your situation require urgent care? If you are bleeding from the mouth, in persistent pain, or have broken anything at all, the answer is yes.
WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON DENTAL EMERGENCIES?
Lost dental restorations
Objects stuck between your teeth
Soft tissue injuries
WHAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER DURING A DENTAL EMERGENCY?
The first and probably most important thing to remember is to stay calm. If you panic, you may not remember a critical step in saving your smile. It could potentially make an unpleasant situation worse. Remember, if you or one of your family members experience a dental emergency, don’t hesitate to go to your nearest emergency room if the injury calls for it.
Your emergency dentist in Fort Lauderdale, Dr. Natalia Benda-Celenski, along with our helpful office team will do everything in our power to schedule an appointment the same day as your accident.

HOW DO I HANDLE A COMMON DENTAL EMERGENCY BEFORE I MAKE IT TO YOUR OFFICE?
Knowing how to handle a dental emergency in a timely, effective manner can help you save your natural teeth. Follow these helpful tips:
CHIPPED OR BROKEN TEETH
Save any remaining pieces.
Rinse your mouth and the pieces using warm water.
If there’s bleeding, apply pressure until the bleeding stops along with a cold compress in 10-15 minute intervals to keep any swelling down and relieve pain.
LOST DENTAL RESTORATIONS
There are various products available in the dental aisle of your local pharmacy that can help you.
Dent Temp—Place the mixture in the tooth’s voided area and pat it with water to harden the material. Bite into it while it’s soft to impress the shape of your tooth.
Toothache gum—soften the gum in your mouth and place it where the missing restoration was. If you can’t use toothache gum, a piece of sugar-free gum will do the trick.
Coat your tooth with Sensodyne or another fluoridated toothpaste and cover the area with sugar-free gum.
A SEVERE TOOTHACHE
Rinse your mouth with warm salt water.
Use dental floss to floss around the aching tooth, try to remove any lodged debris or food.
Use a natural anti-inflammatory like clove oil or a hot chamomile tea bag to reduce swelling.
Control the Situation, Act Fast
Try to stop or slow any bleeding quickly. If bleeding does not slow down after 10 minutes of continuous pressure, head to the emergency room. You should also go straight to the ER if you have broken a bone in the jaw. Otherwise, take an over-the-counter pain medication to control pain, apply an ice pack to reduce swelling, and call your emergency dentist in Fort Lauderdale.
